Large margin on the left side of the text - how to make it narrower?

Hi Guys!
I’ve noticed that my obsidian has a large margin-like area to the left of main body of notes. How to make it smaller - just to make the preview/editing better optimiesd in terms of screen.
Below you can find visualisation - it is just a waste of space…


Open settings, click on Editor, and you’ll see the option Readable line length, which is on by default. You can turn that off to reduce that margin.


It worked!!! Thanks!!!

Thank you so much for this! I was pulling my hair out trying to figure this out. I feel so embarrassed it was in the settings I went over a million times with. Cheers.

What is the margin for? How do you used it?

humm, sorry that does not make any sense, the product designer did not consider a huge space almost in the middle of the screen to be a problem?

Create CSS snippet with code .cm-scroller > *:first-child {
